Peter's Mission
Sustainability

Truitt Family Foods® was founded on
the model of Foods that Make a Difference®.

We seek responsible progress, continuous improvement, vitality and health for our customers, employees, growers, and suppliers.

Our passion for clean, healthful foods is a reflection of our belief that a better food system – from process to product – is the foundation of better living. It’s better for you. Better for workers. Better for growers. Better for the environment. That's our philosophy.

It’s the same way the team at Truitt Family Foods® has been doing business for over 40 years.

We hope that if we're making foods that make a difference®,
we're making a difference for you.

FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS

We couldn’t do what we do without our family farmers. They are our partners in business and sustainability. We are proud to have them as part of our family, and proud to introduce them to yours.

OUR STORY

#BeTru

Truitt Family Foods® founder Peter Truitt was a wide-eyed twenty-something when he first spied the 100-year-old cannery on the Willamette River in Salem, OR.

In the 40 years since he bought it, he’s shaped it into a modern facility that takes local, natural ingredients and turns them into high-quality, shelf-stable food...the old fashioned way.

PETER'S MISSION
